Key Principles and Definitions

In order to work towards an inclusive community where all belong, individuals need to be well-versed on the key principles and definitions pertaining to inclusion, diversity, belonging, equity, and access/accessibility (IDBEA) work. Below are some of the principles and definitions.

More principles and definitions can be found on the NYU Office of Global Inclusion and Diversity’s page. However, due to the nature of how language operates, particularly around these concepts, many of these terms are dynamic and evolve based on global context.
